My Story as a SAHM
When I became a mama, the first few months were pure bliss. I found myself constantly thanking the Lord for my daughter. And then came the 4 month sleep regression. My lack of sleep, cranky baby, and ever-growing to-do list tested my patience.
I even began to question my role as a stay at home mom. Was this really what God had called me to? Was changing diapers doing anything for His kingdom? I began begging God for strength and guidance.
This is how I found these Bible Verses for stay-at-home moms. I hope that they give you the courage and strength to keep going. This is some of the hardest and holiest work God will give you.
